A stylish debut mystery with the perfect balance of sweetness and scares!
Thirteen-year-old Bernie's summer is looking pretty grim. It's hard to make friends when your family runs a monument company, and your backyard is littered with tombstones. It's even harder when your mother suddenly refuses to leave her room . . .
To make matters worse, her father has just hired a new artist to engrave the headstones--the creepy Mr. Stein. Bernie has a bad feeling about him right from the start, and after snooping around his cottage, she discovers an engraved portrait of their neighbor . . . a woman who promptly dies the next day. And it's not just a weird coincidence. The pattern continues, and Bernie realizes that Mr. Stein has begun engraving headstones before people die, which forces Bernie to ask a horrifying question: Is Mr. Stein predicting the deaths . . . or causing them?

I love this book!! Couldn't put it down! Bernie is just the right blend of sweetness and sass, innocence and cunning - to keep you guessing just what she will come up with next. Abbot Stine would give anyone the willies. Well written - crisp and endearing. Great read for any age!
Love it! Very descriptive - I felt like I was right there in the story with Bernie! Quick read - perfect for middle school kids - just enough scare to keep them interested.. but not too much!
Really kept my interest.
